Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my sighing. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray. In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. Psalm 5:1-3 (NIV)
In The Morning
When will you meet with me? When will you turn your heart felt sighs into prayers to me? When will you cry out to me for help? When will I hear your voice? When will you come into my house? When will you enter my temple? When will you bow down before me? When will you take refuge in me? When will you be glad and sing joyfully to me? When will you allow me to guide you on a straight path? When will you allow me to bless you? When will you allow my favor to surround you like a shield? When will you allow me to hear and answer your prayers? You want to do all these things for me? If I did not want to do these things for you, would I bother to ask you these questions? No. I’m sure not. Do you believe that I want to do these things for you? Yes, I do. Then do you have an answer for my questions? In the morning I will meet with you. Then and there and throughout all the moments of my day, I will turn my sighs into prayers to you. You will hear my crying out to you. You will hear me asking for your help. I will come to rely on you. I will place all my faith and hope and trust in you. I will humbly come into your presence. I will bow down before you. I will submit my heart and mind and life to you. I will have no need to worry. I will not be filled with anxiety. You will be my refuge. You will be my shelter in every storm. I will be filled with joy and gladness because I know that you will be with me to help me. You will help me to walk a straight path as I love and follow and serve you. You will help me to live a life that is pleasing to you. You will help me to know and do what is right so I can be a bright and bold witness for you in the darkness of this world. You will bless my life with your kindness and mercy and love. Your favor will rest on me and surround me like a shield. You will hear and answer my prayers. Yes, I will do all these things for you. Thank you, Lord.
Lord, I will meet with you in the morning. I will humbly bow down in prayer to you. I will turn the sighs into prayers to you. I will expectantly wait for you to answer my prayers. Help me to walk a straight path with you. Be a shield of protection around me. Amen
